Whisk together the maple syrup, mustard, and salt in a small bowl. Add the vinegar and whisk until smooth. In a slow and steady stream, add the olive oil. Season with black pepper to taste. Add more salt if needed.
Quinoa & Salad
Make farro according to the package. You'll end up with more than 1/2 cup so you save half for another day. Mix farro with 2 Tablespoons of the salad dressing.
Assemble salad: Add greens to a bowl with farro, grapes, figs, fennel, herbed goat cheese. Mix with dressing according to preference. Top with honey roasted almonds!
Honey Roasted Almonds
Preheat oven to 350.
Place 1/4 cup almonds in a bowl. Warm 2 teaspoons of honey just so it liquefies and pour it over the almonds.
Mix to coat almonds and spread onto a parchment-lined baking sheet. Sprinkle with sea salt. Bake for about 10-15 minutes, tossing halfway. Let cool and then chop.
This would be a great idea for a salad to bring to work! Just put it in a mason jar and take some of the dressing with you!
